    Nah, the problem with Worm is that it takes real planning as a writer to attempt to diverge from canon. The butterflies from not following the stations of canon are fucking massive due to the inherent nature of having a setting full of precogs and such. Most Worm fanfics start off with a trite little disclaimer telling us there's been no planning done and they're winging it. That's probably the reason most fics peter out after around 70k words and/or Leviathan.

    I read it for a little while and grew bored, because nothing of note happened except for angst. I'll probably go back after a bit and try again, like I did with Worm in the beginning.

    It took about an arc and a half for me to get pulled in (right up to when those meetings started happening). I felt like it could go into a sort of generic indy! route or turn out a bit more interesting than they'd appear on the surface, but I've enjoyed the story so far. The first arc was just pretty rough and all over the place.

    So...the Joker as played by 4chan? That sounds worse than most shitty SB quests.

    Not necessarily, I think it's going well so far. It's the Joker powerset, joker personality characteristics are a side effect which were trying to find a solution towards in quest.

    The fact that you think it's going well is indicative of how trash this quest truly is.
